Mountain America Credit Union, based in the Valley, said that its new multi-year partnership with Phoenix Mercury will enable it to increase their charitable work.
Mountain America will become the official credit union for the Mercury and will be the exclusive provider of new Mercury debit and Credit Cards, featuring the WNBA Team's colors and logo.
As a credit union that is focused on the community, we are committed to providing innovative payment options for our members and personalized financial service while also supporting local organizations across our footprint. In a press release, Sterling Nielsen, Mountain America Credit Union's chief executive officer, said that this partnership was a great opportunity to accomplish all of the above.
In order to achieve this, the partnership will involve working together in support of community organizations. The Mercury will sponsor the 20th Annual Mountain America Swing for the Kids Golf Tournament that raises funds for Primary Children's Hospital.
Vince Kozar said in a press release that the Phoenix Mercury was excited to partner up with Mountain America to offer their fans a new way to show support through the Mercury-branded debit and credit cards. This is an opportunity the team has never had before. This partnership is in line with our commitment to giving back to the local community and innovation. We look forward to a successful and long-lasting partnership.
Mountain America has eight branches in Arizona and is based in Utah. Credit union claims to have more than one million members.
Mountain America has had other Arizona sports deals. The credit union has signed a helmet-logo deal with the Arizona Coyotes for the truncated season of 2021, which was reduced to 56 games because of Covid-19.
Mountain America has also acquired the naming rights sponsorship of the community Iceplex on campus, which is attached to Arizona State University Mullett Arena.
The Phoenix Mercury will kick off the WNBA 2023 season against the Chicago Sky on May 21, at the Footprint Center downtown Phoenix.
